Okay, I will have a look at.
I assume that is the starting point to use:

What won't work?
Let's assume all but a special location (e.g. /control) is proied.
The special location is handled locally.
This location could contain the login formular and CGI scripts.
The example ""
seems that it is possible to inject variables.
But I assume you would point me that the server behing the proxy
cannot inject session variables to the session handled by HTTPD.
